How To Make Ice Candles with Pattiewack!

DIY Video - Ice Candles

If you're stuck in the snow and looking for something fun to make, or you just love candles, here's a fun idea to start out the New Year.  It's that old-fashioned ice candle craft that you probably saw your mom or gramma make when you were a kid.  It's just so cool to think that ice and wax can be put into a milk or ice cream carton to make pretty ice candles, right?

Here's what you'll need:
  • Recycled wax-lined Cartons (ice cream, juice, milk, soup)
  • Taper candles
  • Ice Cubes
  • Wax (candle wax, crayons, recycled pillar candles, paraffin)
  • Foil-lined Cookie Sheet
  • Double-Boiler (I like to use an electric wok and a 2 lb. Coffee Can)
  • Oven Mitts
  • Scissors
 I hope you have a fabulous New Years Day!  They say that whatever you do on the first day of a new year is what you'll be doing throughout the year, so I something creative, and
Have Fun With It!
